a quick question on susan rice. do you believe the benghazi incident disqualifies her to be secretary of state? >> it will prevent her being confirmed until the white house comes forward with the answerses to all the questions all of us have been asking. what happened on the 16th of september when she went on the talk shows and talked about blaming the attacks in benghazi on an anti-muslim trailer in the united states when, in fact, we've come to learn that intelligence people knew it was a terrorist raid and we had no explanation as to why we couldn't protect our ambassador and lost our first ambassador in the line of duty since 1979, if those questions aren't answered then there's not going to be a confirmation in my judgment. >> all right. i have to leave it there. georgia republican senator johnny isakson, thanks for coming on. >> thanks, chuck. >>> optimism over the fiscal cliff is fading in washington but not on wall street. they continue to believe a deal is coming. the market rundown is next. and from secretary of state to new york city mayor, michael bloomberg's crazy specula

in benghazi. she blamed an angry mob, not a terrorist attack by al qaeda. rice has said that she was working off of information she had at the time, but republicans largely led by senator john mccain have accused her of misleading the american people and said because of that, they wouldn't support her nomination. it was that pushback that led her to give a letter to the president saying that she did not wish to be considered. she said she believed the confirmation process would be long, lengthy and disruptive and just not worth it to the country at this time. president obama did accept that decision, and then said that he regretted it but also said that it spoke to her character. she will likely continue to work close w closely with the president, either as his u.n. ambassador or as his security adviser. he will likely now nominate senator john kerry. larry? >> many thanks. on top of the susan rice story, we are also learning tonight that retired nebraska republican senator chuck hagel is reportedly on president obama's very short list for secretary of defense. to talk about that now, my gre
that sort of stuff. i think it was better defended than the american diplomatic compound in benghazi and i mean that seriously. it turned out not to be necessary but i mean i didn't spend all that much time there because i did a lot of embedded reporting. they shifted it to a different location but you know, they had a bureau there with armored cars, full-time iraqi staff. it was a fairly large endeavor for the newspaper. >> are there any americans in iraq with armored cars? >> it has improved. i was there the summer before to see prime minister melekian i went around in the street with iraqis, got out of the car and went to a demonstration went to a store. i wouldn't linger in some of the more contested neighborhoods. if you went into sadr city you would make sure you have security. it is better than it was by far, it's a million times better than it was an six and a seven and i have to say from a military perspective, the search really did drive down the level of violence. it was the surgeon made possible for american forces to leave but there are very unsettled political issues includin
